Read by Zachary Brewster-Geisz, Geoff Cowgill, Michelle Crandall, hosmer_angel, Lee Ann Howlett, Larysa Jaworski, JemmaBlythe, Lady Maria, Lord Peter, Martina, Mellors, Alison Raouf, scrappylibrarian and Jennifer Stearns.
A tale of passion set in the bleak Yorkshire moors in mid 19thC, far from the Victorian uprightness, Wuthering Heights depicts the mutual love of Catherine and Heathcliff till destruction rends the narration; yet cruelty is only to be met with forgiveness in the following generations. Romantic, impassioned and wild, it is also a dark journey in the human soul. (Summary by Lady Maria).

some chapters are just unbelievable. Obviously not many readers take this very seriously :(

Giving constructive feedback is one thing; being rude and offensive is another.
Show some appreciation for other peoples' hard work.

I know people said the woman with the heavy accent was a pain to listen to but I absolutely loved it when she spoke. It keeps me interested, as opposed to some of the males who just drones on in some monotone voice. I loved it!

Need a good english speaker
It's nice and almost attractive to hear a foreigner reading of good literature. However, the speaker hasn't perfected English enough to be reading literature. Unfortunately, it's a labor to listen too.

Poor quality could not listen
The voices of the narrators were so bad I could not even listen. I have wanted to read this story for a long time and thought audio would be great. The quality of the recordings was also very bad. I wish that Librivox would re-record this with someone like Karen Savage reading it. As they say JMHO!
Boy it was nice to see other people agreed with me on this.

Some of the readers on here are just, plainly, annoying to listen to. There's one – no offence, please – latina / spanish-speaking woman who makes no attempt to read outside of her deep accent. What I mean by that is that it makes it terribly, terribly difficult to understand because she cannot construct the "th" sound, and her diphthongs sound very Spanish. Honestly, I had to pick up the book around chapter 18 because some of the pronunciations were just that deplorable.
However, on the other hand: there are a few people (one man especially) who read quite well. One man uses inflection and changes his tone or different characters. Unfortunately, I believe that was only one chapter. Other than that, don't waste your bandwidth.

Great story, horrible audio!
Not everyone here is bad, most of the men do a fine job, but some are just utterly attrocious! The French girl reading is cringe worthy! Overacting, and irritating accent! I feel like she's spitting every time she's reading! And she reads about 8 times in the story! Best bet is to listen to only a few audio sections and read the rest on your own.That's why I did personally. Some of the audios, really just of two readers, are soooo utterly horrible.
